Prayer. Worship. Compassion. Faithfulness. Stewardship. Teaching.
The New Covenant Church of Philadelphia is part of a global movement of people in fellowship with the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana). Together, we seek to fulfill God’s mission in the world. We’re committed to studying the Word of God and faithfully living it out. We’re committed to the mission that Jesus Christ gave every believer: to make disciples of all nations (Matt 28:18–20).
The following statements reflect the heart of our beliefs:
Salvation makes us members of God’s Church. We believe that God’s Church is composed of every person who has accepted Jesus Christ as Savior. We also believe that individuals may determine the local congregations they desire to identify with and make commitments to. (John 3:1–7).
Christians are called to be one. We believe that God calls all followers of Christ to live in unity and peace, regardless of who they are or the congregation they attend (Gal 3:28).
We must be holy. We believe that followers of Christ have been called to live a life of love, purity, and godliness. We are called to live like Christ, taking on a new nature (2 Cor. 5:17).
We also embrace these biblical principles:
The Lordship of Jesus. There is one Lord, who is God’s Son Jesus Christ, over the Church. Christ is the Church’s ultimate authority on all matters (Acts 2:36).
Making Disciples. Each of us is called to fulfill Matthew 28:18–20, making fully devoted followers of Christ—disciples—who will then teach others to follow Christ.
Loving God and Neighbor. We are called to fulfill Matthew 22:37–39, not only loving God with our entire being, but also loving all that he loves.
The Work of the Holy Spirit. God’s Spirit equips believers with unique gifts that enable us to carry out the mission of Christ in the world. At the same time, the Spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control in every believer (Galatians 5:22–23), which demonstrate the Spirit’s presence within us.
Serving God with our time, talents and money. Since God is the source of life, all of life is to be used for the honor, glory, and service of God (Psalm 24:1).
As people, we are all different, yet we share a common story of faith and growing together into the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:13). We worship and serve as citizens of God’s kingdom. We celebrate our life in Christ and accept our call to be the body of Christ in our world—all to the glory of God.
